A Defence Force soldier was allegedly assaulted after an incident at Hamilton's managed isolation facility.
However, what exactly happened remains unclear as the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment [MBIE] says it can't comment while the matter is before the courts, but police confirmed a 30-year-old man has been charged with assault after the incident on Friday, April 9.
Court documents show the accused named as Nathan Opetaia.
A police spokesperson said the man has been charged with assault after an incident at the Jet Park MIQ facility at Hamilton Airport.
"As the matter is before the courts police will not be providing further comment at this time."
The Herald understands the victim is a soldier with the NZ Defence Force.
A Defence Force was approached about the seriousness of any injury and a spokesperson confirmed a member "received medical attention in hospital after the incident at the Jet Park managed isolation facility in Hamilton".
"As the matter is before the courts we have nothing further to add."
Opetaia - who the Herald understands travelled from Australia - has pleaded not guilty to the charge and he is due to reappear in court in July.
Hamilton is home to three managed isolation and quarantine facilities - the Distinction Hamilton Hotel, the Ibis Hamilton and the Jet Park Hotel Hamilton.
Auckland has 18 MIQ facilities. There are six in Christchurch, two in Wellington and three in Rotorua.
